Art at St. John's Senior School is one of the most popular subjects. Pupils of all age group enjoy a wide range of art materials to create their ideas, producing sculptures in clay, wood, modroc, papier-mâché and many found natural and man-made objects.

The emphasis in the lower school is leaning to draw and paint skilfully from direct observation.

Once this skill has been mastered to a good standard, pupils can branch out and develop their work and ideas into poly and lino printing, scraffigto, ink, pastels, paint collage and into sculptural forms.

The lower school have entered several nationwide Art competitions winning art prizes both for themselves and prize money and computer equipment for the school.

We have many talented young artists whose skill is nurtured and developed to an extremely high standard as proven by their exam results. My last G.C.S.E. group all gained A*, four of these pupils achieved 100% and the others all gained over 98%!

The AS level pupils were marked at 96% plus also achieving the top grade. Each year several pupils go on to study Art degrees. In June we regularly invite parents, pupils and friends to our very exciting Summer Art Exhibition where you can view some absolutely stunning artwork of a very professional standard.

The IVth, Vth and VIth years this year have created some very unusual pieces ranging from Batik and glass painting to costume designs, textile wall hangings, three dimensional glass, china and tile mosaics and much more . Each piece of work inspired by a famous artist or art movement.
